    Eyes on Texas

    The Texas women blazed to the college 4x100-meter relay title in 43 seconds flat, the third fastest time ever run at the Penn Relays.


    No guts or just silent?

    Penn was not the only college sports program with a coaching search this year.

    When Renssalaer Polytechnic Institute hockey coach Dan Fridgen resigned, the middle-of-the-road Division I program was forced to begin a search.

    But there were some challenges.


    Orleans on the baseball schedule

    I got an email Tuesday night from Jeff Orleans, executive director of the Ivy League, wanting to talk about my column from Tuesday about the Ivy League baseball schedule.

    At first I thought that I was getting called into the proverbial principal's office to hear a lecture about Ivy League rules, the principles of education and why the Ancient Eight is not a big-time athletic conference.


    DP does Dallas (Day 5)

    DALLAS -- Wow. It's our last full day in Dallas and we couldn't leave without having a little bit of an adventure.

    If you've been following along with us this weekend, you know that it's been raining the last couple of days.

    Jay Wright of Villanova gets most of the credit nationally for playing a four-guard offense. After this weekend, it would appear as though Fran Dunphy wanted to show everyone 'Nova is not the only team in the city that can make do with just one big man.

    But Wright doesn't play four guards willingly, and neither did Dunphy.


    Not much to say

    Tonight at the Palestra was fairly uneventful -- I guess that's a good thing.

    Penn did what it had to do, which was come out and play adequate ball.



    Paper Tigers

    I might be the only one left out there, but I'm still not sold on Princeton. Sure they're in second place in the league after pummeling Brown and Yale over the weekend, but Joe Scott's Tigers still have not proved they can win a tough game.

    Happy birthday to you

    Last night, Penn fans serenaded Ibrahim Jaaber on his 22nd birthday, and his teammates rewarded him with a win.
